Angles on walls in homes are rarely as precise as the angle on your miter box. Have you ever used a coping saw. This couple of minutes might very well be worth your time.  https://www.youtube....h?v=W8ccy0wLErQ This allows for all of those inside corners that invariably wont match your miter saw.

That works for the inside corner, but he still has to get the outside corner made too. It's always a crap shoot on an angled wall! I usually try to find a couple small scraps and play with the angles until it fits decently! Then it's a matter of getting the length right!

22.5 was close. As KennyP said I used some scraps and played. Paint able latex caulk filled on the gaps.

When I made the rafters for our sunroom I had to make compound angle cuts to intersect the roof with the perpendicular roof on the room.  I used an app like this one HERE.  I just plugged in my numbers and it found the angles or gave me the length I needed to cut at..

Those things can work nice. But, on inside sheet rock corners, you never know how much the mud has changed the angle.

I'm putting a vote in for a wood working/home repair/home remodel forum.

Why do I have a feeling it would wind up something like this?
